    Sat solo during Friday Happy Hour. Very nice server Sharon took super good care of me. Can’t go wrong starting the night out with a pitcher of ice cold Kirin for only $12!!! My favorite cuts are the Premium Kalbi and Beef Tongue with a side of Kimchee. Everyone works hard and as a team here, that’s why Gyukaku Waikiki is always on my to dine list when visiting Hawaii.

    Second time there and we ordered the $85 preset menu for two, for three of us. We're not big eaters so this was more than enough food. It started with a very good green salad with a great dressing. All of the meats were tasty and tender. The smores they serve as dessert was a pleasing surprise.

    Only complaint that the pictures are deceiving. For instance, there is an ice cream choice that had a special syrup and soy powder on it. The picture clearly shows 2 scoops. When we got it there was 1.

    Things have changed to their detriment~they do not offer Sanchu~the lettuce and special sauce combination to create lettuce wraps with the meat you grill. This is a staple for Korean BBQ in Japan and the US Korean restaurants. Our request for additional portions of meat took over 30 minutes to deliver~ how can this happen when its just marinated meat? I’m not sure if I will go there again.

    Get ready to eat tons and eat good! Not only is all their beef options and the chili shrimp super good (we are not big pork eaters), I Love zucchini and I LOVE sides. Edamame, Kim Chee cucumber, gyoza, tofu, seaweed salad, rice, miso soup. Service is great and everyone always very nice. Came here for my birthday with my husband :) and will bring my parents when they come.

    I had a yearning for Japanese food while in Honolulu and walked past Guy Haku. I had a pleasant and positive result to my enquiry so booked. A busy and cheerful atmosphere when we arrived and were greeted by our cheerful server, Baxter, His advice and attentiveness made our dining experience great. We enjoyed the food we chose and went home very satisfied. Regretfully our stay was too short for a return visit.
